The living room features a comfortable queen sleep-sofa bed, coffee table, and wall-mounted 47" TV screen, as well as a gas parlor stove for added seasonal warmth. A large square dining table seats 8. A fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a half bath are also on this level.

We had a fantastic stay in Gloucester at this beautiful carriage house. The owners were helpful and accommodating. It was so clean, and comfortable, and decorated so nicely. There was plenty of room for the two of us and our four children!

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Rose!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. The location was great - about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Gloucester, Bearskin Neck in Rockport, and Good Harbor Beach. The cove was also nice to walk around and enjoy the water. The house itself was comfortable & quiet and Richard was easy to reach with questions. I would recommend this house to families looking to spend some time in the Cape Ann area.

Very cute cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a four night stay with my wife and 7-year old daughter, and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very well appointed and cozy, and we enjoyed the proximity to Lane's Cove, which is really pretty. And the surrounding Lanesville neighborhood is charming. Overall, highly recommended!
